If you’re one of the few still without the original Wii, Nintendo is offering up a little Christmas cheer—in the form of a black Wii bundle.
The company just announced plans to start selling new bundle, which will include a black Wii, with a matching black Wii Remote Plus controller and a black Nunchuk controller. Rounding out the package will be the New Super Mario Bros. Wii game and a Super Mario Galaxy soundtrack CD.
New Super Mario Bros. is one of the Wii’s top selling games, with more than 20 million units sold worldwide. The CD, well… is just kind of weird. Still, if those gaming sounds in your head aren’t enough, this extra will not be something that’s sold separately.
Nintendo’s new Wii bundle will be available for $149.99, starting October 23, 2011. A standard bundle, which includes the Wii console (white or black), matching Wii Remote Plus and Nunchuk controllers, the Mario Kart Wii game and Wii Wheel accessory, will continue to sell for the same price.
